November 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Some quick links, stats and fun in advance of Wednesday’s rematch of the ’93 Finals…. Ian Levy over at Hickory-High conducted an in-depth analysis of how Amare and Nash have fared without each other individually as well as how the Suns are coping without STAT as a team.

November 20th, 2010 · 4 Comments

Bobcats 123, Suns 105 To say it’s been an up and down week for the Phoenix Suns would be an understatement. One game they’re drilling a franchise-record 22 triples in a win over the Lakers, then following it up with a gutsy win against the Nuggets. But when competition ramped up and legs got tired, […]
